Not long ago, Canonical published a database of supported components for Ubuntu, and I noticed, that my video card Manhattan [Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series] have full support only at Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, but I have installed 10.10, and want to know, does it have support on this version too?

It's a list of Ubuntu certified (tested by Canonical for OEMs) and Ubuntu ready (tested by OEMs) hardware, that's guaranteed to work on the specific systems they were tested on.

This doesn't mean that hardware not on that list won't work fine with Ubuntu - but it's possible. This also doesn't mean that hardware on that list won't work with older, later, or future versions of Ubuntu - but, again, it's possible.
